If you look closely you will see that this review compared 5400rpm 2.5" drives with 7200rpm 3.5" drives.Reply
Which makes it completely useless and flawed. I seriously can't believe Tom's did that. Maybe if there had been 5400rpm 3.5" drives included, some useful information could be gleaned from the tests.
This entire article should be deleted just to save face, if not disk space. This article's very existence makes me embarrassed for Tom's Hardware.
This is ridiculous
the outside speed of the platter !!
I cannot believe it .. you wait one turn never mind where your data are located and at 7200rpm your platter may be 1 meter in diameter it is not going to change anything it will stl be one rouind trip
You will wait one turn ( 1/7200th of a second )
It ain't go faster nor slower mechanically
The heads are another story
